Audition Update is moving. Click here to learn more.

Hello Everyone,

You’ve heard us talking about it all summer, and we’re finally ready to show you what we’ve been working on. I’m proud to announce that is moving to its new home on the Backstage Community.

What are the benefits of this new location? It’s anonymous, it's mobile-friendly, it’s easier to police spam content and fake accounts, and best of all, it has collapsed threads! In addition, our developer team will be able to make changes, fix bugs, and implement new features much faster and easier on this new platform.

You’ll notice there’s a banner across the top of the screen here advertising the new location. If you click through that link, it will bring you to the registration screen where you can create your account and automatically receive the “Veteran” flair for being an Audition Update user. Even if you already have a Backstage account, clicking through the link will grant you the flair automatically so everyone will know you’ve been here a while and know what you’re talking about.

We’ll be decommissioning this forum slowly over the coming weeks, so you should save any threads or details that you want to reference later at your earliest convenience.

We know this will really help to improve things here at Audition Update, and we want to thank you - the community - for being here with us through the whole process.

– The Backstage Community Team

  • Phantom of the Opera Advice! 04/15/2018  10:13pm

    Hi everyone! I am an EMC actress preparing for my first ECC for Phantom (I know I may not be seen, but just in case!). I fit the type they described and I am a really strong dancer (in pointework, as well), so I know that I can do well in this audition and don't want to be thrown off by anything unexpected!
    Does anyone have any words of wisdom for me? Or has attended an ECC for Phantom before and have any tips or info (how advanced the pointework was, etc.)?
    Thanks so much :)


    You'll definitely get seen, they always see non equity at the dance call. The pointe work is not hard at all, they really are just looking for the right type/aesthetics. (But of course you still have to do well on pointe)

    ^ would you mind saying what exactly is required pointe wise, if you know? I used to be decent on pointe, but it’s been a minute since I’ve really done it. Thanks!

    The video of the anniversary is available and shows exactly what the number is and what the corp de ballet does on pointe.

    Or go do a standing room ticket and you can see it live.
